WWW Wednesday(1)


This is my first time taking part in this so please leave a comment telling me if you like this feature and if I should keep doing it. WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading and involves answering these three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What have you recently finished reading?
What do you think you'll read next?


And here are my answers:

Currently reading:
I'm currently reading a lot of things, but I'll give you the ones I've read from recently or the ones that I want to talk about.


American Gods by Neil Gaiman

I'm really enjoying this book so far, I'm just over a hundred pages into it and I'm completely hooked.

I've, sadly, only read one other Neil Gaiman book, but this one has drawn me right in. I can't stop thinking about it, randomly it'll pop into me head and I'll just look longingly at the book, wishing that I could be reading it right then.
Heartless by Gail Carriger

The fourth book in the Parasol Protectorate series. It's so good so far, I'm not really that far into it, but I adore this series.

Werewolfs, Vampires. If you haven't checked out the first one, I suggest you do. The first one is about a Spinster, Alexia, in an alternate Victorian England who doesn't have a soul. Obviously, shenanigans ensue and such. They're adult books, so keep that in mind, but they're really good.
The Colorado Kid by Stephen King

This is the book that the show Haven on SyFy is based on and I adore that show, and I really wanted to read this to see where it all started, took me ages to find an okay edition. I'm not too far into it- I'm sensing a theme, are you sensing a theme?- but so far I've been really enjoying it.

Grave Mercy by R.L LaFevers

Nun assassins. There, you're interested now, aren't you? I was. I'm not that far into it- surprise!- but I really liked what I have read. I love some assassin/spy action and this has this whole mythology thats in it, too.


(Can I just add that I love that cover. And I read on Twitter from on of the book bloggers I follow that she's holding a real crossbow, it looks so heavy! And bad-ass).



Recently finished:

The Lost Years (Merlin #1) by T.A. Barron

This is about the very early years on Merlin's life. When he was just a child and didn't really understand his powers. Merlin, of course, from the legends/myths of King Arthur. It was a cute, quirky book, I really enjoyed it.


My full review review of this one can be found here.





What I want to read next:

172 Hours on the Moon by

I got this in the mail yesterday and read the first 15 pages, before I told myself I had to finish at least one of the books that I'm currently reading before I start a new one.

(And that cover is creepy and amazing, I love it so very much).





The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman

It just sounds so good. People have been saying it's the DaVinci Code for teens and, having never read said book or watched the movie, I am still intrigued. I just like the idea of something in history that could lead people on this huge adventure, it sounds like such fun to read.

(I like this cover alright, it's very nice and everything, but have you seen the UK cover? It's gorgeous. Also, I'm not the biggest fan of huge faces on my covers, that might be why this one I'm just kind of "eh" on).

  1. I'm reading Grave Mercy now as well and loving the history and intrigue of it all. I really wish I had more time to read it! I also really need to get back to the Gail Carriger books. I loved the first one in the series but there never seems to be time for the others. :-(

    Merlin and 172 Hours also sound really good.

    My WWW Wednesday is here.

      There never seems to be enough time to read, which is just so sad.

  3. I'm definitely a Neil Gaiman and a Stephen King fan! Keep reading more Gaiman - even his children's books are great.
